# Mac 上 Class JavaLaunchHelper is implemented in both 报错

Class JavaLaunchHelper is implemented in both /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_121.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java (0x10d19c4c0) and /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_121.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/libinstrument.dylib (0x10ea194e0). One of the two will be used. Which one is undefined.

It’s the old bug in Java on Mac that got triggered by the Java Agent being used by the IDE when starting the app. This message is harmless and is safe to ignore. Oracle developer’s comment:

The message is benign, there is no negative impact from this problem since both copies of that class are identical (compiled from the exact same source). It is purely a cosmetic issue.

The problem is fixed in Java 9 and in Java 8 update 152.

If it annoys you or affects your apps in any way, the workaround for IntelliJ IDEA is to disable idea_rt launcher agent by adding idea.no.launcher=true into idea.properties (Help | Edit Custom Properties...).

idea.no.launcher=true
